Committee on Course of Study and Faculty: 

ORGANIZATION OP GRADUA TE SCHOOL. 

GENERAL. Graduate 

Schooj-. 

The organization is based upon 

I. The recognition of the department as the unit. 

II. The qualified individual instructor or instructors 
within the department a6 the directive agents. 



5. 



III. The apprenticeship system of instruction, that is, 
the clustering of one, two or three graduate 
students about every qualified instructor in 

the department and in the college for intimate 
study and experience. 

ORGANIZATION. 

IV. A Committee, consisting of the instructor having 

the major subject of the graduate student as 
chairman, and such a number, as may be determined 
by the Director, of the instructors having the 
minor or minors or supporting courses of the 
graduate student as associates, be appointed to 
advise the student, supervise and control his 
work, subject to the approval of the Graduate Staff. 

V. The assignment of a graduate student to an instructor 

shall be left with the Director and Head of the 
Department in which he elects his major courses. 

VI. Should a graduate student be admitted as a candidate 

for no degree and fail to designate a major course 
the Director shall appoint a committee to act 
in the same capacity and to have the same power, e.B 
if a major and minors had been chosen. 

VII. "The Staff of the Graduate School", or the "Graduate 

Staff" shall consist of the President of the 
College, the Director of the Graduate School, and 
the instructors who are chairmen of graduate students' 
committees or who are in immediate charge of major 
subjects or courses, and the chairmen of those 
committees supervising graduate students' work, not 
candidates for a degree. Subject to approval of the 
President and Director of the Graduate School. 

VIII. The Staff of the Graduate School shall be directly 
responsible to the President and the Board of 
Trustees except in those matters which the President 
may deem desirable to treat conjointly with other 
staffs and faculties, as general policies, before 
submitting them to the Board of Trustees. 






6. 



Some Essential Detai ls and Policies. 

IX. Because of the possible value of the work of graduate 

students to the state, it is urged that no tuition 
be charged, whether acting as graduate assistants 
or not. Further that, unless laboratory fees 
are such as arise in connection with undergraduate 
subjects, which are outside 01 major and minor 
subjects, they also be remitted. 

X. The number of graduate assistants should oe increased 

to that point wnere the educational work of the 
college or the investigations of the station will not 
be injured. 

XI. It is urged that tne departmental courses of study 

for graduate work be xeft witn tne staff subject 
to the approval of the Board of Trustees, as 
formerly. 

XII. Major and minor courses leading to the degrees of 

ffi.Agr. and D.Agr., or such specific degrees as 
may nereinafter be determined, shall oe formulated 
in the practical departments of tne college. In these 
courses basic systematic worn in the sciences and 
practices, along with actual technical experience, 
shall be the highest ideal. The formulation of such 
courses shall emanate from the various technical 
departments, shall possess uniform requirements and 
standards, and shall be submitted to the Graduate 
Staff for action, which in turn will transmit tnem 
to the Board of Trustees for approval. 

XIII. Since exchange with other institutions is highly 

beneficial to graduate students, it shall be tne 
duty of the Director and Staff to foster it in 
those cases where it is pertinent and valuable as 
far as is compatible with tne interests of our own 
institution. In case a graduate student cannot 
secure at this institution what is essential to nis 
work and training, it shall be the duty of the 
Director and tne Staff to arrange for such elsewnere. 

XIV. Every graduate student must satisiy tne Graduate Staff 
with a certain amount of practical agricultural 
knowledge and training, tne amount, kind and 
quality to be determined by the Staff.

The President presented the following 

resolve for consideration: 

That the President acting for the Trustees ad 
interim, be authorized to issue Executive Order s"Executive 
covering matters which, in his judgment, require Orders" 
immediate decision, and these orders shall have 
the same force as a Trustee vote. Such Executive 
Order shall be reported to the proper Trustee Com- 
mittee or to the full Board, and be subject to 
approval or reversal by the Trustees.

The President is further authorized to 
issue similar orders in case of matters coining 
under the immediate supervision of the Faculty. 

The general policy above enunciated was 
discussed and approved. ITo action was taken, but 
it was agreed that the details should be left for 
consideration in connection with the reorganization 
of the by-lans of the institution. 

Mr. Bovvker read a tribute to the late 

Marquis Fayette Dickinson, and it was 

VOTED : To spread this tribute on the records 
of the Board, and to send a copy to 
Mr. Dickinson's family: Tribute to 

M.F.Dickinson 

"Marquis Fayette Dickinson was a 
member of this Board from 1905 to 1915, 
succeeding to the vacancy caused by the 
resignation of Charles L. Flint. His 
appointment by Governor Bates was a 
^surprise to many, ana was criticised by 
a number of practical farmers, who thought 
at the time that a practical farmer instead 
of a lawyer should be appointed to the 
Board. The appointment proved a wise one, for 
we needed a man of Mr. Dickinson's training and 
temperament. We needed a lawyer to advise 
us in legal matters. Mr. Dickinson's 
services Mere invaluable in this respect. 

But, aside from legal advice, Mr. Dickin- 
son was a wise counsellor and a genial 
associate. His keen humor ana nappy sug- 
gestions often relieved a tense moment in 
our discussions. He possessed a charming 
personality, always sunny, buoyant and 
optimistic. He took a broad, hopeful view of 
life, and of the v*ork of this institution. 
While Amherut College was his alma mater, 
yet I think he loved Aggie as much as he did 
Amherst, for it touched him to have been made 
one of its trustees. 



9. 



He was a loyal friend of the collwge 
and of those who eame to know him inti- 
mately. We regret that ill health com- 
pelled him to resign, but he left a 
delightful memory and a splendid exumple 
of faithful, cheerful, helpfal service. 
This Board wishes to record its deep ap- 
preciation of that service, and to extend 
to his family its sincere sympathy."

VOTED : To place on record the following memorial to 
the late- William H. Bowker: 



II MEMORIAM 

Our associate William Henry Bowker, senior member of 
this Board in years of service, died at his home in Boston 
three days ago. 

Born July 3, 1850, at Naxiok, and taught in the public 
schools of Phillipston and Templeton, he was a member of 
the first, - the "Pioneer" class of students received at thti 
Massachusetts Agricultural College October S, 1867, and was 
graduated there July 19, 1871. 

After about two years given to teaching and newspaper 
work, he founded, on new and untried lines, the business 
that by various stages grew into the large, successful, and 
dominant work of his life, - the making and merchandising 
of fertilisers and allied products. In the technical and 
commercial aspects of that business he became an acknowledged 
authority. 

He set up for himself and his associates, high standards 
of honor and accountability; and was a potent factor in 
promoting through legislative regulation and otherwise the 
policy and practice of the open hand in dealings between 
manufacturer and consumer. 

Always from his student days an ardent friend of the 
College, and perhaps the most resourceful and effective 
worker and leader in its behalf, among its alumni, - he 
became in January, 1885, a member of this Board, as the 
first one appointed by the Governor of the Commonwealth , 
under legislation that sprung from his own early suggestion 
and efforts to reform the tenure of its membership and 
terminate its own self -elective functions. 

He was conservative by family heritage and home in- 
fluence, democratic, large-hearted, a lover of manly men 
and popular among his fellows. His mental traits, ripened 
through wide and intimate contact with men and affairs and 
by much reading and travel, were marked by breadth of view, 
originality of ideas and independence of thought, which with 
a natural aptness of expression and power of effective 
statement, made him interesting in conversation and discourse 
and forcible in controversy. 

With intimates his speech was well-nigh as frank and 
free as his thought; often leavened with humor, always (when 
in health) with good nature; and if in discussing real issue 
to be faced and placed, he sometimes urged his view or 
criticised an opposing one with an apparent excess of ardor, 



7. 



it was not due to lack of human kindness and sympathy in his 
make up, hut rather to keen interest, ample courage and 
faith in his cause. Withal, he was equally ready to concede 
points scored by an opponent, and left no sting in the 
hearts of those with whom he differed. 

He has now laid down in honor and loyalty at the feet 
of his Alma Mater and of the Commonwealth, the burden and 
the harvest that go with high privilege and duty done, after 
the longest term of service given by any present or former 
member of this Board; and was himself conspicuous in making 
that period the richest and most fruitful in the history of 
the College he loved so well. 

Be It Therefore Resolved : 

That this Memorial be inscribed upon the records of 
this Board; and 

That a copy hereof be sent to his beloved wife and 
family, to whom we offer our deepest sympathy. 



The following officers of the Board were elected 

for the ensuing year: 

His Excellency, Samuel W. McCali, President. 
Charles A. Gleason, of New Braintree, Vice-President.

The President reported the opinion of the Attorney- 
General, by letter dated January 20,1916, relative to the 
payment of a college employee after the date of hie decease. 

It was 

VOTED : To spread on the records of the Trustees the 

substance of this opinion, which is as follows: 

w If the payment proposed to be made was of money 
belonging to the Massachusetts Agricultural College, as a 
corporation distinct from the State, there could be no legal 
objection to this action, but by St. 1911, c.311, all property 
real or personal, belonging to the Massachusetts Agricultural 
College, not held by it upon special trusts, vested in the 
Commonwealth, so that moneys derived from other sources, as 
well as direct appropriations by the Legislature, are now held, 
by your institution as trustee for the public. The real 
question then is whether public moneys can be expended for 
this purpose. 

"There is an implied condition in every contract 
for personal services thut the employee will be able to per- 
form such services and in case of his death during the con- 
tract of employment the employer's liability to pay further 



Payment of

compensation or salary is terminated. And If such payment is 
made it would be in the nature of a gratuity. 

"R.L. c.6, #58, dealing with salaries payable from 
the Treasury of the Commonwealth, provides, in part, as fol- 
lows:- "No salary shall be paid to any person for a longer 
period than that during which he has been actually employed 
in the duties of his office." 

"Tor the above reasons I feel compelled to advise 
that, in my opinion, suoh a payment as you propose would be 
an unauthorized expenditure of public funds."

Born November 14, 1853, in Woburn, and educated in its 
public schools, he entered Amherst College in 1871, was graduated 
there in 1875, and in 1878 received its M. A. Degree for post 
graduate work in History and Political Science. 

After graduation he taught in the schools of Woburn, Brim 
field and Palmer, and from 1879 to 1888 he held the dual posi- 
tions of Principal of the High School and Superintendent of 
Schools in Great Barrlngton. From 1888 to 1890 he was editor 
and publisher of the B er kshire Courier in Great Barrington, an 
a correspondent of the New York Herald . 



For ten years from 1890 to 1900, Mr. Hosmer was President 
of Oahu College at Honolulu, where he became prominent in soei 
and civic affairs, and sanitary problems, and in political actjl 
ities that culminated in the establishment of Hawaii as a terri 
tory of the United States. He returned to the States in 1900, 
and after visiting England and France, settled in Amherst in 
1901. 

During the last eighteen years, he has served loyally and 
well his town, state, and country, — for the common interests 
of the community in which he lived, — in many lines of public 
and community service; and particularly in these later days he 
had devoted his energies without stint to activities in suppor(t 
of the world-wide war for humanity.

Mr. Hosmer represented the Third Hampshire District in tfy 
General Court of 1908 and 1909; was appointed by Governor Dra 
in December 1910 a member of this hoard; and reappointed by 
Governor McCall January last for another term. 

Here he has served continuously and with diligence and 
faithfulness unsurpassed, upon the Trustee Committees on 
Finance, Course of Study and Faculty, and on Legislation,- 
of which committee, during the later years of his service, 
he was Chairman . 

He has always shown a broad, liberal, and sympathetic 
spirit in construing the objects and upholding the standards 
of the College; and in striving to make those objects and 
standards effective through the work of its various depart- 
ments . 

He was cordial and sympathetic toward al] . He laid hold 
on opportunity gladly, accepted responsibility cheerfully, and 
undertook manfully whatever work or duty came to his hand, 
until in a night he was taken, after a life filled to its last 
day with the purpose and privilege of high calls to service, 
bravely met and faithfully answered. 

Be I t Ther efore Besolygd^ 

That this memorial be inscribed upon the records of the 
Board; and 

That a copy hereof be sent to his beloved wife, to whom 
we offer our deepest sympathy.
